October 27, 1960:  A crowd estimated at between 200,000 and 250,000 between 34th and 42nd street along New York's 7th Avenue gives Sen. John F. Kennedy (circled at right) the biggest rally of his 1960 campaign. Kennedy repeatedly told his cheering audiences “Whether I am the candidate for the Presidency, or President, or stay in the Senate, I regard our obligation not to please you but to serve you, and in my judgment, in 1960, a candidate for the Presidency should be willing to give the truth to the people and the truth is that what we are now doing is not good enough.”
